Bethesda/id software announced a follow-up to DOOM (2016). Here's the teaser trailer:

Actual gameplay live stream is supposed to happen on August 10th at QuakeCon.

Fans of the classic DOOM II from 1994 will be glad to know that the Arachnotron, Pain Elemental and Arch Vile appear to be returning. Hell (no pun intended) yes!

For me personally, as a big classic DOOM fan, DOOM (2016) is my favorite game from the last few years. The direction I am seeing from the trailer is exactly where I hoped for them to take a sequel. Following in the footsteps of the original DOOM II, it looks like this is going to be hell on earth once again, and more familiar monsters that were left out of the original 2016 reboot are coming back.

This was the best news to come out of E3 for me. I love classic Doom, and I surprisingly liked the 2016 update. And I love to hate the Arch-Vile, so it will be good to fight them in Eternal. Or not.

i thoroughly enjoyed the Doom remake- it was a great homage to the original one.  I'm looking forward to seeing what the sequel offers.

The good thing about the original is it's dropped in price significantly--looks like people can nab new copies for $20 at any major retailer now (minus the Switch version that recently released). I enjoyed the hell out of it at $60, $20 (or less for a used copy) is a steal.

Not only was the 2016 version an awesome game, but it had an awesome soundtrack, too. If the upcoming game's music is anything like 2016's, it's going to be intense as hell.

I really felt the 2016 DOOM was the prefect mix of classic and modern FPS gameplay, and I agree with the OP that the trailers make it appear that they are going in the right direction.  I am very much looking forward to this.

I know. I just had a huge backlog when it released so I never got it. I'll see if it's lical, then get it online if not.

I got to play a few levels of a friend's copy back when it was new and liked it though.

Keep an eye on fanatical and greemangaming.com as both of them tend to run every week coupons and extra coupon deals with they stack percentages off.  I've seen old Doom 2016 go for pretty cheap.  There was a bethesda sale running this week due to E3, may still be going on.

Doom 2016 is one of the very few games I would buy on the switch and something else because it's fun enough to romp through on beefy hardware / with mouse and keys as well as portable.  It also goes on steep sales enough on non-Nintendo platforms that it's pretty viable.  A repeat in that vein would be most welcome.

I did get it on switch. And it feels more playable on it too compared to pc I have it on too. Its like it was made with a game pad in mind
